Tim Roth plays mind games with Rebecca Hall in Resurrection trailer

The human mind is such a fragile thing. Sometimes we need to cling to a few lies and illusions just to make it through the day. That’s one of the reasons why the latest trailer for Resurrection is so intriguing. In the film, Rebecca Hall’s Margaret is haunted by the events of her past, and her mental struggles have apparently been an ongoing challenge for her to deal with. However, the relatively happy life that Margaret has put together as a single mother is shattered when David (Tim Roth) reenters her life.

This trailer seems to be intentionally vague about what relationship Margaret and David had in the past. It’s also unclear whether David is gaslighting Margaret when he claims that he doesn’t know her, or if she is simply projecting her justifiable fears about David’s return onto someone else. Margaret’s daughter, Abbie (Grace Kaufman), even tells her mother that she may be having “an episode.” This suggests that Margaret has had some mental breakdowns before. It also forces viewers to question whether the threat of David is real, or if it is all in Margaret’s mind. How far will Margaret go to protect herself from threats both real and imagined?

Michael Esper co-stars in the film as Peter, with Angela Wong Carbone as Gwyn, and Jaime Zevallos as Driver. Andrew Semans wrote and directed Resurrection from a script that placed in the 2019 Black List of the best unproduced screenplays.

Resurrection will premiere simultaneously in theaters and on digital on August 5. Shudder will then stream Resurrection to its subscribers in November.

YouTube TV adds Magnolia Network and other FAST channels
YouTube TV on Apple TV.

YouTube TV has added a handful of channels of the FAST variety — that is, the sort of thing you'd find on an ad-supported service like Tubi or The Roku Channel. The additions are hardly the only FAST channels on the largest live-streaming service in the U.S., which has more than 5 million subscribers as of June 2022.

New to YouTube TV are Magnolia Network, Charge!, TBD TV, and T2. The CW also makes an appearance in the list of new channels after a new deal was reached earlier this spring.

What’s new on Peacock in June 2023

Unlike Max, Peacock will not be dropping the first three letters from its name. Nor will Peacock be wishing away its original shows and movies to the cornfield, never to return. At least not yet. For now, Peacock remains the best of everything that NBC and Universal have to offer. And for the most part, that entails a lot of sports programming that runs the gamut from Major League Baseball to tennis, golf, swimming, track and field, and even minor league football. The United States Football League may not be as popular as the NFL, but it's maybe the fourth-best thing!

Fortunately, Peacock also has a winning lineup of movies from the Universal Pictures cinematic library, as well a few films on loan from other studios. There's also a new Peacock original series coming in June, Based on a True Story, which looks like it might be a winner in the vein of Only Murders in the Building.

The Boogeyman’s ending, explained

Movies based on the macabre works of Stephen King tend to have memorable endings. From the unlikely Mother's Day movie Carrie's "hand from the grave" moment to Pet Sematary's undead spouse returning home, King's movies always leave the audience breathless with suspense and speechless with horror.

The Boogeyman, the latest in a long line of Stephen King adaptations, promises more of the same. The movie, about two sisters battling an unseen entity in their new home, looks just as scary as other 2023 horror hits like Skinamarink and Evil Dead Rise, and promises an ending to remember. Digital Trends explains The Boogeyman's ending, including who dies and what exactly is haunting the film's lead heroines.
